Gold Gone; Liang Wins Cooler
Following a preflop raise, a call from the button and one from Gregory Liang in the small blind, Jamie Gold three-bet an additional 10,000 from the big. The original raiser folded and the button called before Liang made a four-bet to an additional 15,000.
Following some confusion between the exact amounts, Gold smooth-called, as did the button to see a flop. The action was checked round to see the land on the turn and Liang move all in for over 50,000.
"I don't think I can fold!" announced Gold as he stood up.
"Holy s**t!" Holy s**t!" Gold added as he continued to deliberate.
"No way I can fold this hand!" finally stated Gold as he slid in his final 40,000 as the button player - who had been texting on his phone for the duration of the hand - open-folded .
"F**k me!" screamed Gold repeatedly as he knew he was drawing dead.
The river landed the and Gold continued to shake his head in disbelief before saying good luck to the remaining players before he left the tournament area.
